    Make water color paints by using old markers soaked 4 at least 8 hours or overnight in baby food jars of water with rubber bands to secure markers so they don't fall over to make wonderful watercolor paint!

    Recycling the Old and Dry markers into liquid watercolor paints! I will have to try it to believe it. WHere to get baby food jars???

  • Alexis Burnett

    Good idea! YES! These are dried out water-based markers. I'm actually turning them into liquid watercolor that paints beautifully. I just fill a clean baby food jar with water, tie about six dry markers with a rubber band, and set them in the top of the jar. I let them sit over night and watercolor is made!

    Turn your old, dried-up markers into water paint. All you need is rubber bands, baby food jars (or something similar), and your dry markers. Fill the jars with water. Band together the markers. Put the tips into the water. Let sit for 8+ hours.
